Mid Life pauses three fierce women at a moment in time – the Menopause. Their bodies are changing and they have something to say. Mid Life unpacks real-life stories of loss, joy and transformation.
Hold tight. There’s a change coming.
Claire was the south east of England disco dancing champion in 1982. Surely, she can’t be menopausal. Jacqui’s busy looking after the grandkids and keeping an eye on her ex-partner’s mum but there’s some stuff she needs to get off her chest. Karen lives alone by the sea. She’s a survivor.
They are the midlife women – the unpaid carers, the up-all-nighters, the emotional load bearers, the shoulders to cry on, the school-runners and the piece-picker-upers. Join them as they unpack their lives hoping to find a way through the loss, mess, despair, frustration, freedom, joy and possibility of the middle years.
